sORrY not sports, but is any year more consistent for China/Rider than 1982, shit man those ones move. Just listened to 10/10. Any other suggestions/or what year do you think?

79 had some nice ones as well, but this beast from Golden Hall is so massive that it created its own gravitational pull:

China starts out pretty raggedy, but by the time they hit the bridge jam, they have put the pedal all the way down.
The bombs Phil is dropping all over the place combined with Jerry's absolute frenzy makes this my all time favorite in terms of raw power. 73 has most of my faves due to the incredible transition jams, but this monster is in its own realm.

Late Era nomination:

Always liked this one. Just 'cause it's '94 doesn't mean they totally forgot how to blister their way through the transition jam.
There's a cool sort of warm up at the beginning of China where Jerry appears to be waiting till the groove is good and locked in before beginning the lyrics. (Either that or he's just trying to remember them- but musically I like it alot.) The rest of China is confident if perhaps slightly deliberate. But it all goes up a few notches as the band lays a rock solid groove that Jerry dances deftly over (with that great sounding rig he had in '94) as they storm their way into Rider.

I don't think there was ever a bad year for C/R (kinda like BEW). So, so many good ones. This one just happened to turn the key for me > https://archive.org/details/gd85-04-14.sbd.jeffm.3667.sbeok.shnf

But 6-26-74 always first pops into my head.

10-10-82 is blistering. What a way to end the set!

Or begin a set. 3/16/73 comes to mind.

Just had 6/16/74 from Iowa and care of the nugs vault. Really loved this one, super Jazzy with lots of Keith on the Rhoades doing max damage.

That's the one that always come to my mind - "been working on the railroad". And that where I got it as well.
